I have a flag pole out now. The 4th coming up got me thinking again. Rigged a pole for the weekend, but wanted something better. I don't care for the pole kits you see at Wally World and such. Too short and close to the house. I made this out of chain link top rail. The pole is nearly 10' tall. Cut a short piece at 60° and welded it to a 1/4" plate with holes drilled to attach. Painted it up in Gloss White and looks pretty good.
I have some flowers I planted coming up, Zinnia's. And my Mums have started blooming. The Yellow always come first.
The holes and greenery laying on the ground are where the squirrels came to harvest the pecans they planted last fall!
